My salads usually consist of a base of either lettuce or spinach, with bell peppers, tomato, cucumber, and then whatever else goes with the particular salad I’m throwing together.
Favourite combinations include:
Chicken, or lemon tangine fried chicken (both pictured above) which I tend to pair with strawberries and other fruit
Aside from salads, I also like to take wraps to work with me, often just containing the above combinations, but another favourite of mine is the Gemsmaquillage pizza rolls which are absolutely delicious and I always look forward to.
I do get tired of just eating salad every day, but I don’t always buy wraps in, so I quite often just take chicken and vegetables in a box and heat them up in the microwave. I usually just take green beans because they are my favourite greens, but you could take whatever you like. I usually just take them frozen in a freezer bag and microwave them at work but sometimes I will precook them to reduce the time I hog the microwave.
Leftovers are often a good option too, especially if you are prone to making twice as much food as you actually need in an ‘eyes far bigger than stomach’ scenario after a long day. I’ve taken many a left over stir fry to work with me!
I hope this has given you some inspiration, and shown that you don’t need to spend hours slaving away making yourself anything too fancy the night before, I for one will just be chucking last night’s roast chicken leftovers in a tupperware box with a freezer bag of greens in the morning on my way out the door in the morning tomorrow!
